Are you making enough money to make you attractive to an agent and/or manager?
Are you so busy with work that you can't manage your own career?
Are you highly marketable (examples: just won an award, created buzz at a film festival)?
If you answered YES to any of those questions, then it may be time to seek representation- if they're not already coming for you. Here are some tips on seeking representation:
1. Do your research: choose 10 agents/managers that are a smart fit for you
2. Find out who else is represented by them, to see if you have a contact on the inside who can bring you in/refer you
3. Have contacts make calls on your behalf
Just as a note:
Agents get +10% because they do +10% of the work. YOU are 100% responsible for your career! Don't expect an agent to be the magic bullet who will propel your career. An agent is a great team member to have and a "stamp of approval" on your resume & reel. Keep doing your "business."
